By M. Penny Levin, Ph.D.

I am a health psychologist in the Philadelphia area, and practice in a holistic context. My interest [in acupuncture] began with my own experience.

I developed a serious inflammatory arthritis following the birth of my children. It was frighteningly unresponsive to traditional western medicine.

After several years of struggling, my husband's chiropractor, who was learning acupuncture at the time, offered to attempt to treat this condition. Within just a few months, I was 20 lbs. lighter, vastly more energetic, and nearly off of all medication.

Over the past several years, both my practice and my personal health care have shifted steadily in the direction of alternative medicine. I work in conjunction with other holistic practitioners in this area.
